The society recognizes top scholars and invites only those students who have achieved academic excellence.

"On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Kole has demonstrated to achieve this level of academic excellence," Nobel said. "Kole is now a member of a unique community of scholars -- a community that represents our very best hope for the future."

"Our vision is to build a dynamic international organization that connects members with meaningful content, resources and opportunities," NSHSS President James Lewis said. "We aim to help students like Kole build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community."

Membership in NSHSS entitles qualified students to enjoy a wide variety of benefits, including scholarship opportunities, academic competitions, free events, member-only resources, publications, participation in programs offered by educational partners, online forums, personalized recognition items and publicity honors.
